Reader Spencer sent us these photographs of a red-tailed hawk who frequents a terrace outside his Brooklyn apartment. And if we could fly, we would too, because that's some sweet view. These photographs are particularly well-timed, as the NY Times' FYI column explained that there are many hawks all around the city, though Manhattanites Pale Male and Lola are the most famous.

Some good hawk-related websites: PaleMale.com, Marie Winn's Central Park Nature News, and Urban Hawks.
